An Bord Pleanála refuses permission for Indaver incinerator plant

An Bord Pleanála has refused planning permission for a proposed €150m twin incinerator project in Cork.

The decision follows a lengthy local campaign against the proposed Indaver Ireland facility in the harbour.

Indaver Ireland had originally applied for planning permission for a 100,000 tonne hazardous waste incinerator, a 140,000 tonnes municipal waste incinerator and a transfer station.

In Jan 2010, Bord Pleanála refused planning for the municipal waste incinerator but said it was considering granting planning for the other one.

It said Indaver should make some changes to its environmental impact statement to address concerns over flooding, coastal erosion and revised emissions.

In May 2010, Indaver reduced the size of the buildings by 40% while retaining the same capacity while it also made changes so water would be recycled rather than discharged.

However, an Bord Pleanála has now refused planning permission with the various parties being informed of the decision today.
